Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death world-wide. Efforts to prevent cardiovascular disease can have a major impact on global cardiovascular disease mortality. This presidential advisory from the American Heart Association reviewed the scientific evidence of multiple studies regarding the impact of dietary saturated fat on cardiovascular disease. It strongly concludes that reducing dietary intake of saturated fat and replacing it with unsaturated fat, especially polyunsaturated fat, will reduce the rate of cardiovascular disease. The following are key points to remembers.

AHA Presidential Advisory on Dietary Fats and CVD
clinical trials, meta-analyses, prospective observational studies, and animal
studies all support the concept of replacement of dietary saturated fats with
unsaturated fats to reduce cardiovascular disease. Reducing dietary saturated
fat and replacing it with polyunsaturated vegetable oil reduced cardiovascular disease
by around 30%. Similar to results from statin therapy. Prospective
observational studies showed that reducing saturated fat and replacing it with polyunsaturated
or monounsaturated fat caused 25% and 15% reductions in coronary heart disease
(CHD), respectively. Mortality overall and from other causes was also reduced.
